ATCC® NDM-1 Strains - Now Available!

Multidrug resistant bacterial pathogens producing the metallo-ß-lactamase, NDM-1, have been attributed to numerous hospital-acquired infections throughout the world. Regrettably, specific testing for NDM-1 is not routinely available in clinical laboratories.

To aid in the development of diagnostic tools that can rapidly and accurately identify these superbugs, ATCC now offers five clinical strains of drug-resistant bacteria known to produce NDM-1. Each of the following strains carries the blaNDM gene and is carbepenem-resistant:

Klebsiella pneumoniae (ATCC® BAA-2146™) Enterobacter cloacae (ATCC® BAA-2468™)  Escherichia coli (ATCC® BAA-2469™)  Klebsiella pneumoniae (ATCC® BAA-2470™)  Klebsiella pneumonaie (ATCC® BAA-2472™)
